Multiple terminals

Running multiple ubuntu default terminals can be a little tricky to manage. To tackle this problem a widely used terminator package is explained here.

In this step, we will briefly learn about managing multiple terminals at once. If the user has only one window and needs to work with more than one terminal at a time then the ubuntu default terminal can be a little difficult to manage.

Terminator also has split-screen functionality to have many terminals running on only one screen.
